Should he go to emergency room or wait (85% blockage in cornonary artery)?

should he go to emergency room or wait (85% blockage in cornonary artery)? My dad has a blockage of 85% in his coronary artery. He has no health insurance. He had an appointment with a Dr who has cancelled on him 3 times due to emergencies coming up. I m worried that if he keeps waiting on this Dr. to see him he could have a stroke. Could he go to the Emergency room to get his surgery? What other options does he have?

Definitely. Go now before anything bad happens. Forget about the health insurance. What can the hospital do? Are they going to turn away someone just because he has no health insurance? Two months ago, I was in hospital and I saw a homeless man seeking treatment at the emergency room. The doctors treated him and he has no health insurance. It's your dad you are talking about. It's 85% blockage. Go now.
